Yet another Penn v. something thread. (EDIT: received Stanford acceptance), so thread title changed . Anyway, rankings-wise they're pretty on-par with each other I think, with UW's clinical program standing out and Penn's research program standing out. UW has the better location for me, but Penn is fine as well. The culture and and people at both schools is relaxed and helpful, something that is important to me but it doesn't help with a decision in this case. Btw, both are mstp acceptances, but I want opinions on the med school since I can evaluate the research part on my own..... EDIT: So Stanford is also comparable. What do people think of its clinical?
